Hosted by IPERIA l’Institut (an association which has been contributing to the professionalisation of domestic work) UDD explores the invisible practices, activities, skills, that are developed at home and that people do unconsciously. Usually, these practices are invisible, not because they do not exist, but because they are not considered important. Main goal of the Living Lab is to highlight them, to give them value, and to co-create trainings, products, services and good practices, to give people solutions to benefit from all of them. This will also enable the professionalisation of domestic abilities. The UDD has the capabilities to create user-centred solutions to help people to live better at home.
